Frequently Asked Questions
Dame Elizabeth Cadbury Sixth Form
What can the Sixth Form offer me?
An excellent chance of success in A Levels & BTEC courses through individualised support along with academic, personal and career guidance. We are big enough to offer choice but small enough to care for you as an individual. Leadership opportunities through e.g. the School Council, Senior Prefect and Anti-bullying ambassador positions, academic mentors in school, The Duke of Edinburgh Award (see our Enrichment & Wider Offer page). Support with work experience and a designated work experience week. Significant enrichment opportunities to develop employability skills and personal growth.
What support is available in the Sixth Form?
As well as academic and personal support available from your form tutor, support is also available from subject tutors, form tutors, Heads of Department, Head of 6th Form and Heads of House, External Careers Advisor. The support covers a range of queries including subject advice, UCAS applications, careers advice and support if you are struggling with a particular subject or personal issue. In addition, Year 12 at times will be working with Y13 so students new to the 6th Form will always have someone who can help, to talk to and learn from.
